NYU to Host Graduate Admissions Open House for Military Veterans—July 18

July 11, 2013

New York University will host a graduate admissions open house for military veterans on Thurs., July 18, at NYU’s Kimmel Center for University Life (60 Washington Square South, room 802 [at LaGuardia Place]).

The event will give veterans the opportunity to learn about a dozen NYU graduate programs and the admissions process from campus administrators and fellow veterans who are current NYU students or alumni of the university.

Reporters wishing to attend the student panel (5-6 p.m.), where NYU graduate student veterans will share their experiences with their military peers, must RSVP to James Devitt, NYU’s Office of Public Affairs, at 212.998.6808 or james.devitt@nyu.edu. The session will be moderated by Samantha Shapses of NYU’s Graduate Student Life.

The event will include representatives from the following NYU graduate schools and programs: Center for Urban Science and Progress; College of Dentistry; College of Nursing; Gallatin School of Individualized Study; Global Institute of Public Health; Graduate School of Arts and Science; Polytechnic Institute of NYU; School of Continuing and Professional Studies; Silver School of Social Work; Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development; Stern School of Business; and the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service.

Veterans have played a rich role at NYU, from the returning soldiers who studied here on the GI Bill after World War II, to some of its most notable alumni, including director Oliver Stone, New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, writers Frank McCourt and Howard Zinn, and U.S. Senator Jacob Javits.

In the spring of 2013, NYU’s student body included 168 undergraduate and 100 graduate student veterans as well as 19 veterans taking non-credit courses.
